The Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Dear Family of Mary!

On this special day, we remember Our Lady’s gift of her self to God in the Temple as a little girl. It is an incredible moment, when such a tiny person was as brave and selfless as any knight or warrior. Mary’s heart was brave and her love for God immense. We could all learn courage from Our little Mother.

For instance, listen to her words in this message:

July 02, 2014 “Dear children, I, the mother of all of you gathered here and the mother of the entire world, am blessing you with a motherly blessing and call you to set out on the way of humility. That way leads to the coming to know the love of my Son. My Son is almighty, He is in everything. If you, my children, do not become cognizant of this, then darkness/blindness rule in your soul. Only humility can heal you. My children, I always lived humbly, courageously and in hope. I knew, I became cognizant that God is in us and we are in God. I am asking the same of you. I desire for all of you to be with me in eternity, because you are a part of me. I will help you on your way. My love will envelop you like a mantle and make of you apostles of my light – of God’s light. With the love that comes forth from humility you will bring light to where darkness/blindness rule. You will be bringing my Son who is the light of the world. I am always alongside your shepherds and I pray that they may always be an example of humility for you. Thank you.”

Our Lady always lived humbly, courageously and in hope!! This is our Mother! She can lead us in the same way of life, if we listen to her!! Today on her feast, let’s pray this Litany of the Life of Mary. As we meditate on all the moments of her life, we will see her courage, her humility, her hope, and most of all her total love of God. May we all become like our Mother!!!
